Group Description

There are five kill shelters in Houston/Harris County and between them they kill approximately 80,000 healthy and treatable animals dogs and cats EVERY YEAR. The City of Houston's Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care (aka BARC), also known as the Houston City pound, kills approximately 10,000 animals every year alone (60% Save Rate).

However, it has been proven by other innovative shelter directors, in the U.S. and other countries that High Kill shelters can transform themselves into No Kill shelters. It is being done all over the country and it can be done in Houston. It is time to take killing off the table as an option.

There is a formula of steps that must be followed-a No Kill Equation-that stops the killing. We want this in all of Houston's kill shelters.

This group is dedicated to bringing the successful No Kill model of sheltering to Houston's kill shelters.

We want to raise public awareness regarding issues at BARC and that there is a solution to shelter killing.

We want more Houstonians aware and involved. As Houstonians, our tax money is used to pay for the deaths of tens of thousands of pets per year when it could just as easily be used to SAVE these animals. It has been proven that it is actually CHEAPER to save an animal than to kill it at a shelter. Yet city officials continue to fight this idea.

If you are interested in helping us stop the killing, then please join our message board. You can find out more about No Kill Houston's efforts on our website at www.NoKillHouston.org.

Please join us. Your voice can make a difference.
